As of Wed­nes­day, “at least eight state le­gis­lat­ors were work­ing on al­tern­at­ive re­dis­trict­ing plans that, in some cases, would sig­ni­fic­antly change an ini­tial base map that law­makers star­ted de­bat­ing Monday. The res­ult is that who rep­res­ents mil­lions of Flor­idi­ans in Con­gress is far from be­ing re­solved.”

Rep. Cor­rine Brown (D-FL 05) filed her law­suit ar­guing the pro­posed map vi­ol­ates the Vot­ing Rights Act. (Miami Her­ald)
